Gaggenau Makes History

Gaggenau Makes History

Founded in 1683, German appliance manufacturer Gaggenau may well be the oldest vendor at Snyder Diamond. Earlier this year the company celebrated its 333rd anniversary with a spectacular installation at EuroCucina. Visitors were taken on a historical journey along an illustrated wall that documented milestones throughout the company’s evolution—there was even a live forge and blacksmith to reflect its earliest years as an ironworks. The historical survey, which was conceived by Munich-based architecture firm Einszu33, ended with a display of some of the most iconic products and the unveiling of a new oven, the EB333. The wall unit is a remodeled version of brand’s renowned 36-inch wide oven, renamed in tribute to the anniversary. Long a chef favorite, the updated design is sure to enjoy an equally loyal following.

Also new from Gaggenau this year are the 400 series Combi-steam ovens. A special sous-vide cooking function offers more healthful cooking options than ever before as cooking at a controlled low temperature in a sealed vacuum pack allows food to retain its nutrients, aroma and texture. And they’re good looking ovens, too. The all-stainless steel units are sleek and handless—to open the oven you simply tap the round knob on the exterior. The ovens also feature a fully automatic cleaning system. Using a cleaning cartridge and water (the oven is affixed to a water supply), the system cleanses the interiors as thoroughly as the more familiar high-heat systems but leaves and even more sparkling and hygienic interior.
